“There are no means for escaping this world
It penetrates even into your sleep
and is its substance
You are caught in your own dreaming
where there is no space
And are held forever where there is no time
You can do nothing you are not told to do
There is no hope for escape from this dream
that was never yours
The very words you speak are only its very words
And you talk like a traitor
Under its incessant torture”
Thomas Ligotti - “I Have a Special Plan for This World”

Did the writer of “True Detective” plagiarize Thomas Ligotti and others?

Did the writer of “True Detective” plagiarize Thomas Ligotti and others?
by Mike Davis

Like many fans of weird fiction, I was overjoyed to discover HBO's True Detective. But as the season progressed, I became increasingly uneasy. It seemed to me that True Detective writer Nic Pizzolatto was "borrowing" words and phrasing from other authors, especially Thomas Ligotti.

New TLO Exclusive Interview -- "Vital Realities: A Conversation with Thomas Ligotti"
Jul 23, 2014 - 4:53 PM - by Dr. Locrian
Hey there, folks. Well, thanks to the patience and labor of Tom Ligotti himself, we have a new interview to consume--and it's over 5,000 words of riveting material which covers Tom's literary revitalization via physical and emotional trauma, a look at "Metaphysica Morum" from the inside out, and Ligotti's opinion on what makes for a good (and bad) interview.

Click here to read it.

Thanks again for your time and effort, Tom!

S.T. Joshi's new Cthulhu anthology will have a story from Tom
Jun 15, 2014 - 10:44 AM - by david
Tom will have a story in the new Cthulhu anthology, A Mountain Walked. Not sure which story. Also, there are 25 signatures including Tom's, T.E.D. Klein, etc. It comes out in July from Centipede Press.

More images:

It contains a whopping 29 stories (10 of them original), along with spectacular art portfolios by Erlend Mørk, Allen Koszowski, and Stanley C. Sargent, along with much other work.

Some of the authors include Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Donald Tyson, Cody Goodfellow, Caitlin Kiernan, Laird Barron, Michael Shea, Patrick McGrath, Mark Samuels, and Gemma Files. Also the book contains new artwork by David Ho, John Kenn Mortensen, and Thomas Ott.

The book is oversized at 11 x 7 inches and contains 692 pages. Joshi hints on his blog that the price may be around $125 but is not totally sure. Centipede also says they’ll have the book on sale for the first couple weeks and they expect to have 500 copies sometime in mid to late July.

Each copy is signed by Thomas Ligotti, T.E.D. Klein, Laird Barron, Caitlin Kiernan, and many others. The signature pages are signed by 25 people; Centipede went halfway around the world for signatures
